Scones are typical english! They are eaten at tea time with double cream and a marmelade, black tea with a drop of milk.
We have scones mostly on weekends for breakfast. Warm with butter melting… I love it with jam. Just delicious!!!
My husband enjoys it with butter and cheese (preferably cheddar 🙂 ).
Our kids love it with everything!
The dough is easy and fast to prepare and baked.
This is the family recipe from Mauritius. It has been handed down over the last years and everyone in the family bakes them. From Mauritius to Australia to England over to Gemany/Austria.
Our daughter shows you how to make them:
- 280 g flour
- 2 TL baking powder
- 1 TL sugar
- 1 TL salt
- 45 g butter
- 1 egg
- 125 ml milk
Whisk milk and egg.
Sive flour and baking powder, mix in salt and sugar.
Cut the butter in little pieces and mix well with flour.
Pour milk-egg-mixture in center of flour and knead lightly.
Put an a floured surface and roll out to 1,5-2 cm thick, cut out.
Brush with milk.
Bake in preheated oven at 220° C, for 12 - 14 minutes.
They taste best still lukewarm.
We like to do twice the amount.
Enjoy baking! (it‘s really quick ?)
